How to use Selective Color

Selective Color creates a stunning look by isolating a narrow range of colors within your clip, leaving everything else gray.
 
Setup

Place this effect on the clip, select the color(s) to remain in the image, and turn up the Strength. You can then use the Soften and Range controls to fine-tune the results. Use the "Show Masks" option to see only the area that will be affected

  • The First Color group selects the first color to isolate in the image.
    • Tint sets the primary color to be isolated. Click the dropper icon to select a color from anywhere on the screen, or click the color box to select from a large spectrum of colors.
    • Range adjusts the hue range to remain visible. Adjust this to find the best threshold to separate the specified color from the rest of the image. Increase this to allow a greater range of color.

  • Soften blurs the boundaries between selected colors and the rest of the image.
  • Strength progressively turns on the effect. Dial it down for subtlety or turn it up to remove the other colors from the image.
  • Enable the Show Mask option to see the image as a black and white mask. This makes it much easier to calibrate the affected area.
